Abstract

Scott County Pueblo is a 700 year old Native American archeological site in western Kansas. This project examines hunting and butchery strategies used by the site’s inhabitants to acquire and consume animals such as white-tailed and mule deer, antelope and elk. Classification of these animal’s remains provides a greater knowledge base from which we may understand the subsistence strategies and life ways of the Puebloan peoples which inhabited the site. In addition, these results may inform on how important hunting was to the diet of the site’s occupants, who mostly made their living though farming corn.
